“I get by with a little help from my friends.”

—Lennon & McCartney, co-founders of The Beatles

About a month ago, my wife Wendy and I had an opportunity to attend a Beatles tribute concert. As members of the Baby Boom Generation, it definitely took us on a trip down memory lane.

Of particular note were some of the quote-worthy lyrics by the Beatles, including today’s message. In a way, I think they were actually understating the extraordinary value provided by our most cherished and genuine friends.


How can you do far more than simply “get by” with a little help from your friends? In what ways can you return this gesture in kind?
